S r.. of Manila Truman Raises Many Questions In Answering One on Election By JACK KUTLEDGE WASHINGTON Wt—When President Truman announced Saturday night he will not run again, he answered the jackpot question that las been fired «t him almost dally year—but in doing so he raised scores of others. Only time Itself will answer these jew questions, but this is what lop officials were saying today: Will Truman try to name a successor? Sen, Hussell of Georgia, a Democratic presidential candidate, and Richard J. Nelson, aide to Gov. Adlai Stevenson of Illinois, who is reported lo be Truman's choice for ;he nomination, said *'No" on a television program yesterday. Sen. Humphrey (D-Minn) said Truman will not try to dictate a uccessor, but will take "a real interest in the selection". Humphrey was one of several who predicted a wide-open convention in July. Sen. O'Mahoney (D-Wyo) predicted Truman will interest himself to the extent of "making sure that his policies are carried on." Would Gov. Stevenson, the man most often mentioned as Truman's choice to succeed him. accept? Stevenson Hedges Stevenson himself hedged on NBC's "Meet the Press" television program. He still insisted he was running for governor of Illinois, but would not say he would refuse tile Democratic presidential nomination. Sen. Humphrey said be believer Stevenson would not seek the nomination, but certainly woulc not turn It down if it were offeree him. Will Truman's decision help ot hurl Republican prospects of victory in November? Harold E. Stassen, a candidate for trie GOP nomination, said the Democrats would be more difficult to beat without Truman as thcii candidate. Sen. Robert A. Tail of Ohio another GOP nominee candidate said anyone the Democrats pick, will be "weakerithan Truman him self." He added they may have to turn back to Truman, implying a draft. Taft earlier had said he would rather run against Truman than anyone else. Truma nbad said the same of Tnft.- Chairman Guy G. Gabrielson of the Republican National Committee said Truman "obviously has heard the voice of the people." Sen. Bridges of New Hampshire, Senate minority leader, said Truman's decision was an "indication the President feels the chances (or a Democratic victory this fall »re mighty slim." Warren Understands Gov. Earl Warren of California, a third GOP nominee candidate, merely said he could understand Truman's decision, and wished ilm happiness. What will Truman's decision m«a in his own party? Democrats generally predicted t would touch off new bids for the party nomination. Officaily entered are Sen. Esles Kefauver of Tennessee, Sen. Richard Russell of Georgia and Sen. Robert S. Kerr of Oklahoma. Sen. Monroney (D-Olcla) said these candidates may deadlock at the convention, in which event Speaker Sam Rayburn of Texas "may be a possible compromise." Truman's decision to quit als9 placed Vice President Alben Barkley and Supreme Court Justice William P. Douglas in the realm of possble canddates. Barkley promised a statement lateg .mis week. Douglas said in January he would not run. What does Truman's withdrawal mean to the South? Subdued cheers came from Southern politicians at odds with the President over his civil rights program. The development added fuel to the fire of Russell's drive. Gov. Herman Talmndge of Georgia said it would benefit Russell's campaign. Gov. James F. Byrnes of South Carolina ignored Truman's announcement but gave new endorsement to Russell. Gov. Hugh White ol Mississippi said he was "pleased" with the decision and said Russell is "going to be a strong contender." Danville Man Injured in Face With Shotgun TCJL&A, Okla. m — Jack 51. of Danville, Aik., was In a critical condition in a hospital today, his face torn b.v a shotgun blast.
